2020 Art Exhibit: Borders

illusions that constrain us

What borders do birds encounter? Our maps do not typically reflect the territories they perceive, the ranges they travel, or the barriers they comes across. How do birds’ boundaries connect to human borders? To those of other species? Edges of things—physically, spatially, temporally— raise questions, not least of which is “Is it really there?”

We ponder this, wondering, how do and will these encounters and connections alter us, birds, and the borders themselves?

Call to Artists! We seek works that share visions of birds, borders, and boundaries, now and into the future, for our 2020 art exhibit, Borders.
